    I note that "hybrid" frequently comes out as "mixing" for anyone who has trouble (Mr. Motors! Wink).

    So there's an 80kW petrol engine and a 25kW motor? Maximum 142PS? And 4WD? And 112mpg? Bet the CO2 is under 99g!

    The Li-ion rechargeable battery pack is manufactured by A123 Systems Inc, with which SAIC will establish a joint venture. The voltage and current capacity of the battery pack are 294V and 40Ah, respectively. Its power capacity is 11.8kWh, but only 88% of it is actually used. Therefore, the usable power capacity is 10.4kWh.

    The drive range of the plug-in hybrid is 50km per charge. The life of the battery pack is about 3,600 cycles.

    The power unit is made by combining the inverters of the drive motor and the motor for the ISG with a step-down DC-DC converter. The dimensions and weight of the water-cooled power unit are 340 x 278 x 160mm and 13kg, respectively.

    Looking at the "graph" in that pdf, this is still a fairly exclusive club, I still think they should put it in the MG6 for the UK and take sales off the Prius IV which is about it's only competition, give all those celebrities an alternative...

    The slightly slow for the available power 0-100Kph of "less than 10.5 sec" is due to the extra weight of batteries, motors etc, the car weighs 1,698kg.
